How's this look guys?
I did a little updating, I cleaned it, tested my parameters, did a water change and added some plants.
Just a few more crypts, and a carpeting plant. Plants Kudos to Mike (Ebi)
Oblongshrimp sent me a scoop of tiger shrimp. They're beautiful juvies right now. And hopefully they do OK in the tank.
It still has the one lone Blue Diamond left. She's a healthy, beautiful shrimp. She just has nobody to mate with. If anybody wants to send me a few blue diamond males, I'd be more than happy to pay.
I do have a question. I've never experienced this before. The shrimp are all swimming up and down, across and back across the tank. It just doesn't seem like they've settled in yet. Is this a normal thing, or are they unhappy with water parameters? I appreciate an answer on this.
Anywhose. Heres a pic with my DSLR.

My pic uploading no longer works through the forums :/
But the light does well. The plants are growing, and a layer of floaters are even there now. It's a really simple tank.
It only recently 100% stabilized though. I need more shrimp for it D:

|Psiorian||Any update on this tank? I'm curious to see the growth with that light.|

Well, seems that the shrimp that looked infected must have been the one that died the other day. All BD's are accounted for and no other shrimp look cloudy.
Not sure about numbers. I have 4 BD's now not including babies and got some breeding. Tigers started with 10 and got two berried females. I guess it's just one of those number games, the more you start with the better chances you have. Maybe once you get your kh/gh sorted out, your BD's will settle enough to breed for you.

Also-- let me ask you what your thoughts are on max adult pop in here? I may get tigers, may get more BDs? What do you think is a good number if I hope to breed out?
|06-18-2013 06:08 AM|
|Nubster||Yeah, tigers breeding well. BD's aren't. One batch on the ground slowly growing but haven't had much action since. I'm getting some algae growth on the glass now. Almost like diatoms but I wouldn't think I'd be getting that at this point. Not much else going on in my tank. More plants added yesterday to the rip setup. One tiger ready to pop with babies, the other I think might have already. There's some clear babies running around that don't look like BD's.|

Oh man. I just figured out why my BD's seemed stressed.. The GH was friggin 16!!!!!!
From zero KH it went to 4 KH. Holy cripe. Something rose the params in there and I'd like to know what. It isn't the rocks.
Well I actually was shooting for an 8gh, 4kh tank, and I was considering getting a salty shrimp product to do it, but I may see how this works. Test once a week and top off with RO daily. See what kind of breeding I get.
After a 50% water swap, filter cleanup, the GH and KH are 8 and 2 respectively. I can live with that. I think it's good for neos and tigers if Nubster ever gets his breeding well enough.

Mark's Almost-ADA Build
Ah well. Good for you. I may need to add stock to my blue diamonds. They don't seem to want to breed.
Hope your summer is well ATM :p

Yeah so I got super lazy and I finally filled up my tanks today........
CRS, TB babies all over the place in 2 tanks, more oebt babies too, and blue diamonds.
Pays to be lazy? LOL basically survived in stillwater at 50% water level for a month.

Mark's Almost-ADA Build
Then I dropped a few things here or there. It is almost ADA because it really almost was ADA (I've been wantin' an ADA tank for a while)
Thanks for the compliment. I really like the way this size of tank looks on a dresser.
